Our beginning work plan

This is the work plan we quickly came up with at the workshop.  By the time we got to this task, we had to hurry a bit as it was the end of the day.  Again... this is the beginning.  We will be working on this plan to refine it, add to it, etc.

  1. I have a number of questions concerning ECGS Technology in order to help. Is the plan to have discussions about the above items and tasks here?
